Jasiri X- Mandela (Listen to What the Drums Say) Nelson Mandela Tribute

I really feel this tune right here. Dedicated to one of the greatest leaders of our time Nelson Mandela. “Mandela [Listen to What the Drums Say]”, was produced by Agent of Change and shot by Haute Muslim. You can download it for FREE over at his Bandcamp page. You can read along, I put the lyrics below.

 
***Lyrics***

Would you go to prison to gain freedom
Or get nailed to a cross to change heathens
Heal the world if its pain your receiving
And spend a lifetime locked in chains to redeem them
When the children are starving
Would you risk it all to till the garden
When your enemies are stealing and robbing
Will you build a brotherhood are you willing to arm them
What if justice was illegal and equality was evil
Poverty was see through the ruling body deceitful
When the righteous need you
Will you fight for your people for the slight for the feeble
Through the eye if a needle was the image of a man
He reached from the clouds he was giving me his hands
Said he was still alive but I didn’t understand
When you die for your nation then your living in the land

Then I looked over the horizon and saw Mandela in a sun that was rising
He said listen to what the drum say, we are all gonna be free one day

When I looked over the horizon and I saw Mandela with wings he was flying
He said listen to what the drum say, we are all gonna be free one day

Patience is necessary for greatness
The question is how strong your faith is
Will it matter how long the wait is
If sacred is what the source of your strength is
The definition of will power
Cause real power don’t have to steal power
Behind bars can you still build power
And will you stay pure when you finally feel power
Mandela 27 years in hells cellar
But you can’t jail a lyric you can’t kill a spirit
When the children hear it their hearts rise
This is much bigger than apartheid its our lives
It only takes one match to start fires
To light up the dark skies
The flames keeps burning even after the spark dies
Tell me what impact will your life have
When your last nights pass will your light last
